Deputy President William Ruto's running mate Rigathi Gachagua now says the Kenya Kwanza government will engage Kenyans in meaningful businesses to support their families and disengage them from crime and cattle rustling.

Using the hustler fund promised by his boss William Ruto, Gachagua said Kenyans will have no time to engage in lawlessness.

Gachagua who addressed residents of Mauche and Kihingo residents in Njoro Constituency, Nakuru County today, June 24 took issue with inciteful leaders who claimed to have been inciting Kenyans along tribal lines.

"Inciteful leaders have no place in Kenya today. It's shameful that people with no agenda can only result in inciting people against tribal lines. Through our youth empowerment and the hustler funds we shall make Kenyans engage in meaningful businesses to support their families and disengage from crime and cattle rustling," he said.

The hopeful Deputy President was accompanied by leaders among them UDA governor candidate for Nakuru Susan Kihika, Liza Chelule, Moses Kuria, Tabitha Karanja, Charity Kathambi, Kimani Ngunjiri, Jayne Kihara, Charles Jaguar, David Gikaria, Samuel Gachobe, Martha Wangari among others also revealed that under the leadership of Ruto, Kenyan learners will be educated without paying a coin.

"During the leadership of the late Kibaki, he introduced free education. Unfortunately, some elements infiltrated the good plan and started demanding some food and development money from parents resulting in children being chased from schools. From January next year, all Kenyan learners will remain in school and will not be required to pay even a coin," he said.

Ruto's deputy has camped in Nakuru for three days now in an effort to try and galvanize the Second in Command's votes in the region that is classified under Rift Valley where Ruto comes from.
